And today is a well run nature reserve with a size of 290 hectares, a museum, auditorium, and network of footpaths, viewing towers, and several hides named after well-known birders. To the north there is a permanent wetland with Cape Flats Sand Fynbos, and to the south in the seasonal wetland you will find Cape Flats Dune Strandveld. In the reserve there is about 278 different species of indigenous plants. The rare and endangered plants are nurtured well, these include: Cape Flats Conebush (Leucadendron levisanus), the Rondevlei Spiderhead (Serruria aemula foeniculaceae) and the Cape Flats Erica (Erica verticillata), in the wild it became extinct.
